This item is a tutorial relating to birefringence, also known as double refraction of light. Birefringence occurs naturally in many transparent solids such as calcite crystals, but can also be created in optically isotropic materials. This tutorial contains an introduction to birefringence and links to several related interactive Java simulations. It is part of a larger collection of materials for students of introductory optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
